I received a final warning write-up but I don’t have any others. It states that I used a messaging tool through our accounting software to message another employee. I have never used this or even know how to. I asked for proof and was told they don’t have to have proof. I refused to sign. Is this legal? Are they trying to push me out by building a case?

The fact is that most employment is "at will". This means that a company can set the conditions of the workplace much as it sees fit (absent some form of legally actionable discrimination). Therefore, unless your temination will violate the terms of an employment contract or union agreement, it is legal.
